We are located in Mexico, more precisely in the region of Oaxaca. Each year, eight different villages very close to each other but with different languages, traditions, customs and habits, meet to present the dances of their communities to a wider audience that enthusiastically celebrates multiculturalism, overwhelming them with the colors, the smiles, the cheerfulness and local pride. This festival named Guelaguetza means "exchange of gifts" in line with the importance of sharing in indigenous cultures, reciprocity and wider community.
Eight outfits, each one full of joy, color and freshness. They are comfortable to move around, why not, for dancing, jumping, rejoice, rejoice. The choice of three different fabrics is to represent the sharing of traditions of different cultures, which do not mix, but rather remain intact over time. The lines are clean and some with geometric shapes that refer to traditional Mexican dresses (Huipil) other with large overlapping skirts and embellished with lace and ruffles. The use of white to represent the strength of this non-color color in its symbolism has always approached the purity of the spirit, an essential element in ensuring the peace of so close but so different populations.
